Or...If after 53 games of being fairly unsuccessful at it, realize a SAC Hit or SAC Fly is just as good.

Not trying to take anything away from your point, but asking Nico to bunt in that situation was like a hail mary...

Even CDS gave up 99% of the time after two strikes...we tried after two strikes tonight twice and failed both times.

I dunno if we win, baseball is a funny game, but I don't think our guys, with the exception of maybe Brodie, look comfortable bunting...and I agree they should learn how to do it, but not in the 54th game of the season...If you haven't been good at it after 50 games, just let it rip imo.

Question is, how much of the early "let it rip" was because of CTV wanting to flex his muscles and not play small-ball instead of the lack of ability? Didn't he come in saying he wanted to play more long-ball and not bunt?

Isn't a sac hit the same as a bunt?

Or look at any analytics done on bunting and realize that sacrifice bunting is a waste in almost every situation....

I said last night and i will repeat. Every baseball player who plays is college should already know how to execute the bunt. No excuses. Swing away with Chinea who cant hit a lick is just like an out anyway. If he cant hit by now he sure as heck should know how to bunt. Nico should already know as well, he is not power hitter anyway. Just a key fundamental not taught at the early age or kid don't want to learn.JMHO

Didn't Chinea hit the HR against Kentucky that won the series?

Unacceptable that this roster canít get a bunt down, so consistently. I think Iím a couple of years, you may not see those calls on two strikes. But I believe these coaches are sending a message and setting a tone for years to come (fingers crossed). Work on the fundamentals, and execute.
